When Tiffany LeBlanc met with new clients who had purchased a unit in One Dalton, the sky-high location of Boston’s Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences, she recalls the husband emphasizing that, despite the building’s rarefied pedigree, he didn’t want to live in a museum.
“Everything was supposed to be livable, not so precious that you need to be in a starched shirt to live there,” says LeBlanc.
For the designer, however, livability by no means translated into rough-and-ready grandkid-friendly fabrics and furnishings. Architect Anne Snelling-Lee, who worked with LeBlanc to realize and detail her designs, says, “It’s the most luxurious project I’ve ever worked on. It had so many applied finishes.”
